Jassim Al Maqabi – what is art?
Art is considered one of the most important cultural values used by societies to express beauty. Art works are models to express and understand the beauty that is achieved by the artist and their emotions. Art provides the best and most noble expression of one’s inner self, and their civilisation. It is also one of the most important factors for progressing cultural awareness, embedded in the depth of humanity. ✤
